CIMSPA adds quartet of trustees to expanding team

The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA) has appointed four new members to its board of trustees.

Sandra Dodd, Manos Kapterian, Tracy Rea and Rowena Samarasinhe will take up their duties on 22 May 2018.

Dodd is the CEO of social enterprise Places for People Leisure and sits on the ukactive board of directors as treasurer.

Kapterian is senior vice president operations at training provider Pearson, while Rea – a former performance director of Scottish Gymnastics – is head of business operations at Lloyds Banking Group.

The quartet is completed by Rowena Samarasinhe, general counsel at Lucerne-based sports marketing agency Athletics Management and Services.

Commenting on the appointments, Tara Dillon, CIMSPA chief executive said: “The knowledge and experience that these new board members bring to the table will help us to further strengthen our position as the chartered professional body responsible for both setting standards in the sport and physical activity sector and providing a voice for its workforce."

• Last week, a report from the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) and ukactive called for CIMSPA to finalise "robust professional standards" for all exercise professionals in the UK, incorporating a broader public health focus.
